Mosel Fine Wines “The Independent Review of Mosel Riesling” By Jean Fisch and David Rayer www.moselfinewines.com page 95 Issue No 48 - October 2019
Julien Renard is the offspring of a French-German couple and grew up in beer country, in northern Germany. After 10 years in theatrical arts, this passionate wine lover decided to give his career a change, and made his winemaking apprenticeship at Weingut Heymann-Löwenstein. He worked for a short period with Matthias Knebel (Weingut Knebel), before taking up a position at Matthias’ uncle Estate, Weingut Fred Knebel, also in Winningen. Besides his day job, he took on 0.7 ha of vineyards and rented garages and cellars to make his own wines, following as close as possibly organic principles and “natural” lines in the cellar (i.e. without any intervention except for a little sulfur added at bottling). 2018 is his debut vintage.
2018er Julien Renard Riesling Trocken (No AP) 92 The 2018er Riesling Trocken with Lot Number 18mth comes from two steep part of the Winninger Domgarten, and was crafted along “natural wine” lines, i.e. fermented and aged without any intervention, in a mix of stainless steel and wooden casks for 10 months before being bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added (total SO2 is less than 15 mg/l). It offers a gorgeous nose made of herbs, anise, a hint of volatile acidity which blows off rather rapidly, baked apple, floral elements, and fine spices. The wine is nicely lively and driven by beautiful flavors of a niseed herbs, ginger, grapefruit, pear, almond, and delicately earthy spices. It leaves a refreshing and nicely tart feel in the otherwise nicely complex finish. The after-taste is hugely long and multi-layered. This great dry Riesling combines immediate drinking fun with depth and layered complexity. What a debut effort by this new grower! Now-2023+
